    Salt – As required

    Water – As required

    Oil – 1 – 2 tbsp

For stuffing
2. Potatoes –2 – 3 boiled and mashed completely

    Turmeric powder – 1/2 tsp

    Kashmiri chili powder – 1 teaspoon

    Amchur powder – 1/2 tsp (optional)

3) Butter – 1 – 2 tsp to serve on top of paratha, optional
    Yogurt and pickle – to serve on side

Method

1. For the dough – Add salt to the wheat flour, combine, slowly add water and oil to form a soft yet slightly firm dough. Cover with a damp cloth or paper towel and let it rest for 15 – 20 mts.

2. For the stuffing – Halve the potatoes and cook in a pressure cooker for 1 – 2 whistles  or any pan adding enough water, until soft. Remove the peel and mash completely. Combine it with all the other ingredients numbered 2 and mix well. Your stuffing is ready. (For an extra taste, you can saute the aloo mixture in 1.5 tbsp oil for 6 – 8 minutes until fried well)

 

3. Roll the stuffing and the dough to equal-sized balls.

4. Now take one atta ball. Dip into dry whole wheat flour and roll to form a 3″ diameter circle. Place a stuffing and bring the edges of the dough to the center and cover the stuffing.

4 Dust the working surface with some atta flour and roll out the stuffed dough to form a circle.

5 Heat a tawa and once its hot, place a paratha and let it cook for 15 secs. Flip the paratha and let it cook for a few more secs. Once light brown spots appear, drizzle some oil or ghee and roast to a golden shade on both sides. Use a spatula to press the puffed areas as the paratha gets roasted.
6 Serve hot with any curry of your choice or yogurt and pickle.
